Hello, I have been shooting for 3 years beginning with a t3i and now use a 60d.

I do photography of events and general news stories for three different newspapers which typically consists of gala events, festivals, and then other small events at restaurants, book stores, and places of business.

I also shoot real estate in which i typically use my 17-40 l lens and my 10mm-16mm which has not so good distortion on corners. I initially wanted to go full frame until i found out my 10mm lenses will not fit.

My other glass includes a 50m 1.4 and an 85mm 1.8

I know only 3 of my lenses will fit on the 6d while all four will work on the 7d mark 2.

I also shoot sports often and do weddings here and there.

I am looking for the best bang for my buck based on this info? Things that i am having trouble with the 60d is low iso performance and soft focusing occasionally. What would you do if you were me please.

What is your budget?

Sounds like you need a do it all camera. To me it seems the 5DIII would be what you need.

BTW, 17mm on full frame is pretty much equal to 10mm on your 60D. So no loss there.

If your shooting sports regularly I would get the 7D mark2 or if even the original 7D or the 70D the later two would be a lot less expensive and would allow you to put money towards better glass if needed while offering significantly better AF performance than the 60D.

The 70D and the 7DMK2 will have slightly better high ISO performance than the 60D but nothing dramatic. While the 6D will have the best high ISO performance the auto focus is the least suited for sports and arguably worse than the 60D due the fact that all of its AF points are located in the center of the frame more so than the 60D which will make it harder to track subjects.

How is the iso on the 7d mark 2, I would really like to shoot at 1600 or 3200 on a decent basis when in bad lighting.

Check it out yourself here: http://www.imaging-resource.com/IMCOMP/CO​MPS01.HTM (external link)

Just select the two cameras you want to compare and it will give you studio scenes at a variety of ISO's that you can compare side by side.

Personally the 7D MK2 looks slight cleaner at ISO 1600 but its a very minor difference. At 3200 the difference is more noticeable but its not a night and day difference to my eye.

It might be worth exploring some noise reduction steps in lightroom/photoshop for your 60D and doing some actual prints at high ISO. The nice thing with these higher resolution sensors is while noise may look a bit unpleasant at higher ISO when you print it's not nearly evident due to the higher pixel density.
